If you're like me and suffer from Crohn's disease or IBD, you know you have to be prepared for a number of things that could happen. That's why having a Crohn's disease essentials kit and an emergency kit is a smart thing to do. From packing in case of accidents to packing the essentials, there are quite a few things that Crohn's disease patients may want to take with them wherever they go. I have two. But really, I have a bin of items I keep. I keep a Crohn's disease essentials kit that I carry with me and another Crohn's disease emergency kit in my car. A number of things I keep just in case can include anything from candy to extra clothing, from gloves to medical masks, blankets, and chapstick — I prepare for anything. So, I have compiled a list of items I think are necessary to bring. Some fit for a Crohn's patient and others are just items I believe we should all keep.
